Bummer, we know! With the limited capacity, early arrival is highly suggested.
We'll also have a small supply of the OBEY/GLK Box Set (7" & Mix), along with the individually packed mix CD's available for sale.
Point blank, Flying Lotus is one of the most gifted musicians on the planet.
Plug Research dropped his first album 1983 last year to unanimous, global critical acclaim, which resulted in a multi-album deal with Warp Records. That "next level shit" artists are always talking about? This is it. In the past, he's blazed Low End Theory on several occasions, with solo sets and at the Beat Invitationals. Now, Flying Lotus is back to celebrate the release of GLK's CD/7-inch on OBEY.
SAM I YAM
[Poo Bah Records]
As one-half of the FLYamSAM production duo (countered by Flying Lotus), recent transplant Sam I Yam is an exciting addition to the L.A. beat producer community. He's rocked Low End with Lotus, solo, at the Beat Invitational. Now he's back again to shred your mind to bits.
One of L.A.'s greatest DJ talents, the goliath behind the decks known as Kutmah has been holding down Angelino hotspots like Firecracker and Soundlessons for years. He's rocked Low End on countless occasions, and we're glad to have him on the team for this week's show.
As well as your Resident DJs
Batting first on the Low End Theory lineup is legendary producer and label boss Daddy Kev. As a producer and engineer, he's spent the last decade crafting classics for the likes of AWOL One, Busdriver, The Grouch, Sage Francis, Mix Master Mike, Abstract Rude, D-Styles, Freestyle Fellowship, The Shape Shifters and many more. His DJ sets are a high-tech affair with Kev primarily engaged in live remixes, slicing experimental beats and hip-hop classics to shreds.
From his adventures on the road with Mars Volta and Prefuse 73, to his production and remixes for Postal Service, Mystic Chords of Memory and Busdriver, coupled with his own solo work on labels such as Rough Trade and Plug Research, Nobody is a living tour de force of creative genius.
His virtuoso skills on the turntables have been compared to that of Jimi Hendrix and John Coltrane. As a former member of Invisibl Skratch Piklz and Beat Junkies, he toured the globe, helping transform turntablism into a global phenomenon. Now, the legendary D-Styles is back on the frontlines of underground culture, shredding your soul every week at Low End Theory.
THE GASLAMP KILLER
[Low End Theory]
Over the course of the last few years, Gaslamp Killer has established a solid rep for devastating beats and intricate cuts. This nomadic West Coaster has steadily smashed the scene from San Diego to Los Angeles to San Francisco, earning the respect of heavyweight players in the process. Bear witness to one of his epic sets and see what the buzz is all about.
Plus Resident MC
He's no longer a secret. After winning the 2007 Scribble Jam MC Battle Championship, Nocando has been catapulted to new levels of international fame. He spent many Thursday nights honing his skills at Project Blowed, and has broken the dreams and hopes of countless would-be-MCs.
